Film of the Day (03/31/18): Don Jon

Don Jon
Written By Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Directed By Joseph Gordon-LevittJoseph Gordon-Levitt

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is generally pretty awesome, and a very creative dude. He always seems to be up to something, so I was surprised to find out that I I didn’t know he wrote and directed a romantic comedy a few years ago.

Playing the Jersey shore archetype to maximum effect, Gordon-Levitt plays a bartender whose passions are simple: working out, cleaning, hanging with the boys, church, meaningless sex…and porn. Lots and lots of porn.

What follows is a different, honest look at expectations vs reality, addiction and relationships. This is a solid film, and good for a stay at home date night.
